Thousands to attend Chicago's largest beer fest

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - The American Beer Classic, the city of Chicago's largest beer festival, is taking place this weekend at Soldier Field.

The event allows people to sample 500 different craft beers. Organizers say the American Beer Classic is the ultimate opportunity to try some of the finest beers in Chicago's iconic Soldier Field.

"You will get your cup and you can go around. You will have tickets you can drop off at the breweries and you can try as many as you please. It's exciting!" Munirah McNeely said.

Not only will event-goers have the chance to try some of the greatest beers Chicago has to offer, they will have the chance to learn a little bit about the beverages.

"We are going to have a history of cider. So it is a really exciting opportunity to celebrate beer here in Chicago," McNeely said said Friday morning during set up.

The festival has a mobile app that allows you to vote for your favorite beers.

This year marks the second running of the event. More than 10,000 people are expected to show up for the festival.
